Planetside 2 is a free-to-play MMOFPS that features combined arms combat on a massive scale never seen before or since.

Has anyone had success with bionics+survivalist(or assimilate) and ASC(or nanoweave) with aux shield medic?
I tried it out the other day and felt it worked alright but the shield recharge was a bit long even with ASC to keep on the move.

Yeah, it really is, and I find it really weird how nobody on plebbit seems to consider the battlegoose op. Most of my deaths are due to needing to reload and getting caught with my pants down. t. nc

There's with weird VS clique/faction loyalty among the kinds of players who browse reddit. They'll usually try to say that the orion is actually better because it can get forward grip (lmao why would you take forward grip orion) or that no one uses it in scrims (even though the obvious reason is that no one has access to it in scrims)
They're just fucking stupid, i mean these are the people who need someone to type /s at the end of their posts otherwise they literally can't detect sarcasm.

Carapace Combat surgeon medic is the best imo.

I've been stacking nano regen, heal grenades, and restoration kits for extreme tankiness.

confirming that Carapace Medic is extremely meta-compliant especially for solo play, if you're using Nano-Regen without Carapace your build is not as good as it would be with it.

LA, HA and Eng. I've been getting fucked especially on Eng for trying to make Archer work. I think I do a little better as LA, or as HA on NC with a Phoenix after I find a good perch.

you might just be one of the honorably soldiers who do the dirty work to push forward. Definitely could be better at combat though. 25fps will get you FUCKED though.

Holy shit y'all are dumb as fuck. Battlegoose is a less accurate Orion. The reason it performs so well on stat sites is because the only people who use it are INHERETENLY EXPERIENCED. You need to aurax 5 lmgs to get it. It is also used by VS vets because it's a good farming tool against meh players due to heat ammo.

The actual best LMG in the game is the gauss saw bar none. It's not even a competition. I have the betelgeuse and the gauss saw and I would trade it for the Gauss saw 9/10 times.

200 damage bullets, easy headshots, insane amount of damage per magazine, and the ability to mow down squads is no joke.

Any experienced player will tell you the same thing, but spoiler alert, most people who post in these threads are garbage.
>>
>>307253
Good players like the gauss saw but its not preferred either or live or in scrims.
>>
>>307256
Yes it is. I look at the activity stats on FISU during primetime and Gauss Saw is almost always killing more people than anything else in game.
>>
Now that the dust has settled, what went wrong with the campaign?
>>
>>307264
That's because its a starting weapon you get for free
>>
>>307267
It is both a free starting weapon and the best LMG in game, yes.
>>
>>307267
Gauss Saw far and above everything else rn as usual:

>>
>>307253
mfw some baddie tries to tell me that the betelgeuse is a shittier orion when everybody used it in outfit wars unless they were ringing with a fresh VS alt
>>
>>307391
It has a higher quality of life due to no reloading and it's a shiny status symbol. Ofc it will be used more if you have it.

Good sundies win alerts, though. You can build out a couple Engi slots specifically for keeping one up and bathe in the certs. Hardlight canopy, tank mines, caltrops, rep grenade, spitfire to harass infantry, hardlight barrier sometimes useful for flow control, Bulldog (max mag) + Walker + deployment shield if it ain't a stealth sundy.

LA, max drifters, take something with good hipfire and driveby niggas. Also C4 for fucking with armor and blobs. I usually run Catlike 5 because you need to into angles of approach and Avoidance because spitfires a shit.

HA, take Promise or something else with extended mag (or Thumper + Incediary ammo if you want everyone including your team to hate you) and learn suppression. You can stay alive for ages staying behind the line a bit and using your shield to eat chip damage while picking off stragglers and softening up the blobs. No need to be a slayer facetanking the world, just play smart and you'll start getting the k/d up.
>>
>>306376
About 3000 concurrent players every day. It's actually getting game updates again.
>>306377
Autoshotty Boosh LA is tried and true. Let massive shotgun spread, high facehug DPS and good mobility carry you through fights you would otherwise lose. AutoShotty Medic is also an option.
>>
>>307071
25 FPS is wildly below minimum performance, you need 60+ smoothed or 144+ unsmoothed in the worst fights imaginable.
>>
>>307534
>Avoidance
I cannot even begin to imagine why you'd use it over Assimilate, Survivalist, Athlete, basically anything else
>>
>>307557
Specifically for sneaking up on camped armor and sundies, it's super useful in that context.
>>

A sniper rifle but for engineers and it damages armor? How quirky! What a lark! Boy oh boy I can't wait to try this novelty strat etc.

It's great against MAX suits, alright against ESFs, and good in numbers against armor. I use it on my vehicle pilot engineer loadout.

I remember the first week of the first campaign was absolutely incredible. Tons of player bases with spawns, armor squads on reclaimed vehicles, massive amounts of players holding high grounds and stealthy cloakers roaming literally everywhere. I loved it so much I switched to the medic as a main class while playing there. Also nobody cared about alerts for the couple of days.
>>

Orion was indeed best when it had .75x.

Gauss Saw is king now.

it's garbage. They are murdering the game. Lore-wise planetmans were cool because they were insane gods of war stuck in purgatory.
Then we got the fucking sanctuary. The fucking "ooooh, no mans land, you can't shoot here, and it's peaceful and you can all hang out together and trade, isn't it fun?"
It removed all the tragedy, because you're not playing a madman anymore. There are politics and order.
And then the campaigns....
Now there is a fucking NS mastermind controlling everything in the background.
All the factions are ruined. Vanu? Brainlets - NS are tech geniuses. NC? Wagies - NS does business. TR? Larpers.
NS holds the power and they can pull the plug whenever. There is no perpetual war.

And the worst thing is that it could be done way better. The game is running out of juice (this time for real) and faggots in charge should've ride the wave.
They should've announced a grand reactive campaign that would span 5-10 irl years.
I'll spare you the details, but essentially it would involve a worldwide counter for all the alerts.
At the end of a chapter (3-6 months), depending on dominating faction, a short ANIMATION would be released that would tell the story of war.
And at the end of the campaign, faction that won most alerts wins the war on Auraxis. We get 20min animation. A month with no nanite limit and meme mechanics.
Termination of service. Maybe PS3 announcement.

You see, we don't need an in-game campaign with gay missions. We need vehicles, maybe new classes, and QoL improvements.
Planetside was never meant to be an RPG, I hate what it became, and I hope it dies.
The playerbase sucks ass too, too many newfags.
>>
>>304744
So, did they ever fix the faction balance of this game?
One faction used to win like 50% of the alerts.
>>
didnt read
>>
>>308169
NS really ruins the setting, don't worry though we'll getting the nso update soon and everyone is gonna be running around as nso, we'll just have different colours instead of factions.
